Fodor's Expert Review Dai Nam

Beyond the City Center Religious Building/Site/Shrine
First opened in 2008, Dai Nam is a massive entertainment complex that includes Dai Nam Wonderland theme park, a sumptuous golden temple, a zoo, an artificial beach, 60-hectare racecourse, and a hotel. You'll probably need to rent a bicycle or golf cart to get around this sprawling complex, which has a recurring Buddhist theme, both peaceful and frightening. An example of the over-the-top-ness of Dai Nam: the racecourse has a 2,200-meter track for motorcycle and go-kart racing, a 1,600-meter track for greyhounds and horses, and a pool for Jet Ski performances. Dai Nam is about 40 km (25 miles) from Ho Chi Minh City, about 1 hour by car or 1½ hours by local bus 616 from Ben Thanh Market.
